Modeling the dynamic response of conduits
(American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers Inc., 2002)
Model-based control of renewable energy systems in buildings
(American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers Inc., 2006)
The paper describes a research project concerned with the problem of supervisory control of systems which combine a range of heat sources with active and passive thermal storage. The work is based around a prototype building ...
Comparing and combining theories to explain proenvironmental intentions: the case of commuting-mode choice
(© Sage, 2007-11-01)
This article addresses the need for systematic theory comparison and development in environmentally significant behavior (ESB) research. Using logistic regression (N = 398), models based on Schwartz’s norm-activation theory ...
HVAC system configurations: an energy aspect
(HVAC&R Research, 2006)
This paper studies the energy implications of HVAC system configuration by analysing energy balance and psychrometrics of typical and innovative systems. Three criteria have been established: (1) the ability to minimize ...
Responsible computers? A case for ascribing quasi-responsibility to computers independent of personhood or agency
(Springer Verlag, 2006-01-01)
There has been much debate whether computers can be responsible. This question is usually discussed in terms of personhood and personal characteristics, which a computer may or may not possess. If a computer fulfils the ...

Exploring the relationships between pedagogy, ethics & technology: building a framework for strategy development
(Taylor & Francis, 2007-01-01)
Real-time error protection of embedded codes for packet erasure and fading channels
Reliable real-time transmission of packetized embedded multimedia data over noisy channels requires the design of fast error control algorithms. For packet erasure channels, efficient forward error correction is obtained ...
